Bosch 4000 table saw wont power on


The field is notorious for failing in these tools -
If you remove the cap on the field housing you can access the field wires - check to see if you have continuity through the field windings.
To further investigate
1) Remove the brushes and inspect them for excessive wear or chipping (If they look burnt or are chipped the armature is suspect)
2) Remove the 4 screws holding the field assembly to the saw frame
3) Pull the field off and inspect the armature (especially the commutator (copper segments the brushes ride on) for burnt or raised segments or windings.

New to table saw use, have my husbands old 10 craftsman, was learning to rip with it doing fine, then it started to bog down during cut until the blades stops, moving. put on a new blade and noticed...


If I understood correctly, you started using your husband's table saw and while ripping boards, you managed to stall out the blade AND motor?! If that's the case, you probably have a very dull blade and are binding your board on the blade. Neither is safe and it sounds like trouble is brewing.

First and foremost, get someone to show you how to safely and properly use and adjust the saw if you are new to wood working and power tools. That saw is capable of turning your lumber into a high speed missal if you do things improperly.

It also sounds like you tried installing a new 10" saw blade. Changing the blade requires 2 wrenches. One to hold the arbor and one to tighten the nut. The blade itself should rest on the arbor between two large washers. Also make sure you install the blade so the front face of the cutter teeth face you and rotate toward you. Make sure the saw is unplugged when changing the blade and never turn on your saw with a loose blade.

Got a coronet band saw and it is not cutting true


Hello,
I am not familar with the Coronet saw and there are alot of reasons your saw may not be cutting true.
- Mark a straight line appx. 1" from the edge on a 2 foot board, using the fence cut the board. Does it stay on the line? if not this is called "Drift"
-Most fences on band saws have a drift adjustment. To adjust mark a board the same as before but this time don't use the fence and saw it down the line about half way, turn off saw with the board in the saw, now slide the fence next to the board. you will see a gap on one end or the other adjust fence to the board(i.e. drift adjustment) now you saw will cut true.
NOTE- on saws that don't have this adjustment you may have to shim the fence to fit.
-If you go to You Tube and look up band saw set up they will cover this in detail.

I hope this helps

I'm a wife with a do-it-yourself knack. I recently purchased a Ryobi 10 in. BTS211 table saw. I find the manual complicated as far as how to actually use the device. Can you recommend where I can get...


I am a retired contractor.
I have a shop with a 10" table saw.
And I have opinions about safe operation.

For safety, turn saw off when making adjustments.

1) Raise blade:
There is a handle you turn to raise the blade.
If you are cutting 1/2" plywood, then set your blade at 3/4" or a bit more.
Keep blade low and away from hands.
Keep hands high and away from blade.

For 1-1/2" thick 2x4, I usually set the saw at 1" and run the board through, and then flip the board over and run it through again, taking 2 passes to make really thick cuts.

2) Blade angle
There is a second handle you turn to set blade at an angle up to 45 degrees
Angle cannot be set if saw blade is fully raised >> lower blade to half way or less and experiment.
Angle cuts are difficult if wood is not perfectly flat and square, or too long or too short (boy is that helpful ... but cutting angles takes some experimentation)

3) Table Guide
You stand behind power saw to operate
The saw table guide is on left side of blade and clamps across the table
The guide markings show inches >>> these are usually approximate
To set guide for accuracy, measure distance from blade to saw guide, and then clamp guide down.

4) Push sticks push sticks push sticks and other safety stuff
Let me emphasize safety first last and always
A table saw will chop your fingers off in a blink
On the plus side, I hear it doesn't hurt. But OMG.
There is a very strong human instinct to reach in with your hand when working on stuff
Train your mind >> if the saw is running, do not lean or reach into the saw
If a board is stuck >>> turn off the saw and wait for full stop
If you wear baggy clothes of a loose shirt, the saw will grab you and pull you in too fast for you to react
Keep your clothes tight and your arms bare

Always use push sticks or push boards::

Notice the saw blade is set low
Two push sticks are used to assist when cutting short board > one stick holds down the board ahead of blade, the other stick is pushing board through saw.
Keep your hands away from the blade no matter what.
The person stands behind and to the side of the board being cut.
The cut wood is supported by a catch table (in this case there are rollers)

Where to stand
Obviously you stand behind the saw to cut wood, and sometimes with long pieces, you can move in front and pull them through, and sometimes with large plywood you stand kinda back and to the side.

Why not stand directly behind a saw? Because saws throw stuff back.
When 'ripping' a board lengthwise as shown in photo above, if the saw catches the board just right, it will throw it backwards like a spear.

If a board 'binds' the saw causing saw blade to stop, then turn off saw, back up the board, and cut again.

Crosscut guide
The saw comes with a T-shaped guide that fits into a groove.
This is a 'push stick' >>> you use it to cross cut a board, and it lets you stand to the side of the saw blade so things wont flip back on you
When using the cross cut guide, remove the table guide that clamps across the saw, or push the table guide WAY back so pieces don't get caught in a bind and the blade flips up the piece and hits you in the face
Remember, the saw throws everything backwards

The saw is strong and fast, and you are best when traveling slow and without rush around your strong friend.

Bosch 4000 table saw will not start. I changed the switch and still won't start, not even a sound. The saw is relatively new, and the outlet works. What should I try next?


A real Weakness of this saw is sawdust and debri entering the cooling ports of the motor causing intermittent contact of brushes which damages the motor speed control board ($40.00). Don't ever operate this saw with out a vacuum saw dust extraction system. Also when you replace the Speed control board also replace the Brushes ($6.00). It helps extend the operational life of the motor components to blow out the contaminants regularly with compressed air through the motor cooling ports (turn off saw first).
You can bypass the speed control board (if you want to disable this wonderful engineering feature by attaching black and white power wires directly to the black and white wires to motor.

My saw wont run only buzz


Sounds like teh capacitor has blown. These machines use normally use induction motors so they need the capacitor to take a charge and give the motor a kick in the right direction. You could CAREFULLY turn the machine on and spin the blade by hand. If it runs now then you will need a new capacitor.
